Chakwera, Mia assure Lomwe belt of cracking the land conundrum

Malawi Congress Party (MCP) presidential hopeful Lazarus Chakwera and his running mate Sidik Mia stormed the Lomwe belt districts of Thyolo, Mulanje and Phalombe  where they assured the people that they will make sure that the long standing land issue in the area is resolved once they take over power this month.

With sizeable crowds in each stop, with  tour starting at Bvumbwe, Mangunda, Chisitu, Kambenje and Phalombe Boma, the people were excited with Chakwera’s  ‘Super Hi5’ agenda and its symbolism.

Chakwera assured the people that he will look into the land issue in the Lomwe belt publicly acknowledging that their own land rights activist Vincent Wandale had a point in raising the  emotive issue.

“Rather than dismissing him as a mad person, Wandale had a point—a valid point. We will look into this issue once we take over,” said Chakwera without elaborating on what he will specifically do to crack the conundrum.

He assured the people that his administrations’ priority agenda once they take over will be to unite the nation, ensure that Malawians are prospering together—with no district being left behind—fight corruption and ensure the rule of law. This is the Chakwera’s political mantra in ‘Super Hi 5’ in which the MCP leadership will hinge on if they win.

The audience were convinced with the Chakwera presidential bid.

“Unlike the late Bingu, the old man (Peter) has failed us. He must go and perhaps let’s try this one (Chakwera).” said a middle aged man who who identified himself as Ambwiye Namakhwa.

On his part, running mate Sidik Mia, appealed to the people to vote for Chakwera arguing he is the ideal President to take Malawi forward.

He said Chakwera has a good vision to develop the country and that he is mature and not vengeful.

Vuto lomawerenga voters total number in the region and assuming that everyone who registered in the central region belongs to MCP. This is why MCP always claims kuti atibera because they have poor mathematics on winning

5000 votes during the last by election was a great stride for MCP especially considering it was always below 500 in the past. I t will be even more in 21 May, believe you me. The political landscape in Lhomwe belt, particularly Mulanje has changed considerably of late. What MCP is after is to add thousands, instead of hundreds, to its votes. Just you wait!
